Some of you may have seen the news that the colleagues and former staff 
of the great director Kurosawa Akira were opening a film school in 
Tokyo's Adachi Ward that would begin teaching students in September. 
Nogami Teruo was the principal and Nakadai Tatsuya the chairman of the 

Well, the news now says that the whole plan has been called off. Two 
employees apparently caused some major problems with a related company, 
which forced Nogami to resign on May 1, and now Nakadai has resigned. 
The school, which hasn't even taught one student, is now closed.
